Let it Snow!

Here in Northern Virginia we had several hours of fine snowflakes falling Sunday with no lasting results.  However, next weekend we might get a significant accumulation starting on Friday into Saturday.   The weather forecasters are even talking potential blizzard.

Let it snow—remember this plaque that Elizabeth made using the Silhouette Cutter last fall when she took a class from Susan Emory at Kelly Ann’s Quilting in Warrenton?
To prep for the possibility of the first big snow and snow-dyeing, Elizabeth cut PFD (prepared for dyeing) fabric back in the fall and soaked it in soda ash when the weather was still good enough for it to dry outside.
Now it is time to try something new.  How about golf ball sized whiffle balls wrapped in fabric?
She took the balls and surrounded them with the prepared fabric, securing them with rubber bands.
Now to wait for the snow to fall.......
